PANIC ABOUT EAGLES OFFENSE? NAH, MOST STARTERS HAVEN’T PLAYED!

So says USA Today:

Panic: We still don’t know what to expect from Carson Wentz when he returns, or if he’ll return in time for the season opener against the Falcons on Sept. 6. Wentz only resumed 11-on-11 team drills last week after a three-week hiatus, meaning that he hasn’t had a chance to develop that rhythm and rapport with his receivers. Of course, many of those receivers have been out, too, with injuries.

And we don’t know if Wentz will have the same type of mobility in the pocket that he had last season when he was playing at an elite level.

Don’t panic: The Eagles have gone through this before with Wentz. In his rookie season of 2016, Wentz cracked some ribs in his preseason debut after playing only one quarter. He didn’t play or practice again until the week leading up to the start of the regular season. That was when the Eagles traded starting quarterback Sam Bradford and elevated Wentz from third string to first string.

The Eagles started that season 3-1, and Wentz had a QB rating of 105.1 with seven touchdown passes against just one interception:
